History Accademia Nazionale di San Luca

The history of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca begins in 1577, when the painter Federico Zuccari and the Cardinal Federico Borromoe founded the Accademia di San Luca. However, the impetus for this idea was provided by Pope Gregory XIII. At the beginning of its history, the academy served as an association of artists. As the first president of today's Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, Zuccari sought to reform the teaching of art. Not only was the teaching of art to be emphasised, but the arts in general were to be promoted. Thus, public exhibitions were and are held. In addition to the emphasis on teaching, the Accademia di San Luca thus developed into a model for modern art academies. It was not until 38 years after the academy was founded that it was finally established with the support of Pope Urban VIII. In 1872, a new chapter opened in the history of the Accademia di San Luca: it became the Royal Academy. The name Accademia Nazionale di San Luca, however, was only given to the Academy in 1948.
